Steps to Remove Daugava Ads Completely

What Are Daugava Ads?

Daugava Ads
Daugava Ads are advertisements that are generated when the program Daugava has been installed on your computer. Naturally, this program is deemed to be adware, and it is capable of working on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Although it is supposed to help you save money when you shop online, it is doubtful that it will be helpful at all. What is more, this program uses shady tactics to enter systems. Most likely, you have not installed it willingly. Adware programs are generally considered as unwanted as their activities may pose a risk for your computer’s security. This is why it is strongly recommended that you remove Daugava Ads right away.

How Did Daugava Ads Get on My PC?

It is typical for adware programs to use a method called bundling to enter computers unnoticed by users. They are attached to installers of free applications that users can acquire from third-party websites. The additional software will be set for installation by default. So users have to make sure to unmark it if they do not want it. What is more, sometimes, if you select Automatic installation, you are not given the option. This is why it is recommended to opt for Custom/Advanced installation. If you notice additional software, decline it.

What Do Daugava Do?

As this is an adware program, Daugava will be attached to your browser immediately after installation. It is compatible with the three most popular browsers: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. Then it will start to display ads in various forms: pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, etc. For the most part, these will show various deals and promotions. What is more, it is very likely that the items they offer will be related to your recent browsing as Daugava can collect the data like search queries, IP address, history, any data stored on cookies, etc.

Are Daugava Ads Dangerous?

The program Daugava itself is not malicious. However, the ads that it shows lead to third-party websites. These are not reviewed, so there is no way to be sure that they are reliable. Many scammers take advantage of this and use adware programs to promote their malicious websites. This means that some ad may present a promotion for an item you have recently looked up online, and if you click on it, you will end up on a harmful web page. Then, cyber criminals can use a number of ploys to scam you. They can use phishing schemes or try to infect your PC and steal your sensitive information.

How Do I Remove Daugava Ads?

If you do not want to expose your PC to any risks, you should remove Daugava Ads immediately. You can attempt to do it manually, but this method is not always effective. Go to Control Panel, open the list of programs, locate Daugava, and uninstall it. It has been reported that Daugava adds files to the system’s registry. We do not recommend users tampering with that as they may cause more problems. If you continue to receive ads labeled as “brought by Daugava”, then the program is still active. The best thing to do in this case is to use a reliable antimalware tool. Not only will it remove Daugava Ads completely, but it will take care of all other intruders, including malware, and it will make sure that they do not infiltrate your PC again.
